Make no mistake. I am not criticizing any of the dedicated directors or employees of the Jewish Agency. Certainly, I have nothing but praise for Mr. Sharansky. But the Jewish Agency is obsolete. It is destined to failure so long as the Rabbis, and Roshei Yeshivot, and parents, and the heads of Jewish organizations in the Diaspora don’t urge their students and children and members to go on aliyah.
There will be more countries to join the Peace with Israel process, and quickly, I would not yet believe the rumor that Saudi will be next. Qatar and Oman are more likely.
He's Just Like Obama (Or Worse)
Since Rosh Hashanah, 67 Orthodox young people under the age of 35, in the tri-state area have died because of substance abuse. 21 suicides, 41 drug overdoses, and 5 alcohol-related deaths!
I love the Jewish People. That’s why I write what I write. History repeats itself. What happened in Spain and Germany will, in one way or another, transpire in America, France, and England, too
Open Orthodoxy wants to dispense with brahca shelo asani isha or believe Chazal guilty of misogyny
Israel & world Jewry are under attack and in grave danger but UN's focus is denouncing Israel
Though Trump will announce the intention of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv To Jerusalem the process can take a few years as first they have to find the proper site for the embassy, followed by 3-4 years of designing and building.
If the world's winds of hatred bring Jews to Israel we are ready, joyfully offering them a home here
This Dvar Torah is a must for every parent and educator.
Abbas called for hard labor/life imprisonment, or death for any Arab that sold land to a Jew.
In a metaphorical sense, God has His refrigerator and His magnets, Our good acts get placed up there on His 'fridge'
I speak Hebrew, English and pantomime with the Arab customers.
This fleeting note of concern by the UN about murdered Israeli civilians remains disappointing.
I spent the holiest day of the year in the holiest place in the world.
Passover is a road that we still travel, a long journey from slavery to freedom.
In France and most of the world, Jews do not get starring roles in the rage on behalf of victims.
Chareidim are no longer a marginal part of the Israeli demographics, the way they were 70 years ago as the modern State of Israel came into being
Prof. Gabriela Shalev broke the glass ceiling.
That egotistical hatred of a G-d that isn’t a culture war idol, that isn’t named Cuomo, Obama, or Ginsberg, is why the battle for religious freedom is far from over in this longest of Chanukahs.
Anyone who read this news story probably had the same thought I had: what a chillul Hashem.
Will fear of Coronavirus do what years of negotiations and attempts at compromise have not, and make the Haredim cooperate with the state?
We are not like our enemies; it’s our responsibility to make sure it stays that way.
I conclude that when the smoke clears, we will have a unity government including at least Likud and Blue and White, and possibly a few others
The opposition to the Nation-State Law is couched in the most inflammatory language possible, including epithets like “racist” and “apartheid.” This is nonsense and is part of a larger campaign to paint the Likud government as made up of right-wing extremists.
Take the test yourself and make sure to share it with anyone you may have some "doubts" about.
